[TASK] TCP Server - Multiple Connection

[TASK] TCP Server - Multiple Connection

Postby admin » Wed Oct 18, 2017 5:27 pm

In a previous post , I wire some simple description about TCP and how to create a TCP Server on PHPoC. That example only supports a single TCP connection at the same time.

In this post, I am going to show how to create TCP server on PHPoC, which supports multiple connection at the same time.

1. Make sure that your PHPoC Blue or Black is connected to the Internet.

2. Please download a PSP (PHPoC Support Package) of libraries and examples from PHPoC.

3. Connect PHPoC Blue or Black to your PC via USB cable.

4. Run PHPoC Debugger.

5. Find an example of tcpn_echo_ac in the PSP.

6. Upload init.php and task0.php files to your PHPoC Blue or Black.
※ Note that the init.php and task0.php files should be located in the root folder.

7. Modify port number in task0.php file if needed.

8. Upload the task0.php to your PHPoC Blue or Black again.

9. We need some TCP clients to test it. You can you any kind of software/program on PC, smartphone which can create a TCP client and make request to TCP Server on PHPoC. You can also use another PHPoC to create TCP clients for testing.
In this example, I use a Windows-based software, namely ezTerm to create TCP client and connect to TCP server in PHPoC. You can download this software at http://www.eztcp.com/en/download/ezterm.php

10. Open some ezTerm windows and type IP address of PHPoC and port number used in the code and connect

11. Send messages from PC to PHPoC via this software and see the result

PHPoC will send back the same message as received. Therefore, ezTerm software on PC receives the same message as what it sent
